whatever happens

I think theteaqueen's good vibes really helped! (And those of all the rest of you, too.) The Theraflu let me sleep through the night, and I got up this morning without that awful fever. Therefore, I felt much better. I went most of the day without meds, only taking some at 2:00 for the cough.

For the first time since the day after Christmas, I actually felt like choosing what I wanted to do, as opposed to just dully staring at things until either something appealed to me as not-too-awful, or I just went to bed. Today, I read books, played online, watched TV, and.... drum roll... wrote!

I finished up a mystery I was reading so that I could go back and read the God Stalk stories by P. G. Hodgell. starwefter told me that PGH was still writing, something I didn't know, and that she has a blog. I PM'd her (Hodgell, that is) through LJ, and she answered me! Now I'm all excited about the new books coming out.

For TV, I finished up the last episodes of The Equalizer. Still love that show. zora113, if you ever see it, you'll know why the name John Cullum creeped me out!

As for the writing, actually, that's a bit of a cheat. I'm not writing anything new, but editing my baby, Redhand. I've been taking copious notes in One Note, and have created a basic mythology, both things I needed to do because I have one sequel almost finished and plan two more. What I need to do now is figure out how to draw a map of the world as I go from place to place with my heroes. But oh, I am having so much fun with Jil and Uru (the bear) again! Actually, I'm enjoying being with all the characters.


I'm glad you're feeling better. I knew you were sick, but I didn't realize that you were feeling so terrible until I read your last LJ entry, which was after I sent my email. *joins theteaqueen in sending good health vibes your way*

Editing can be fun as well as frustrating, no? I got to a point in a fanfic that I was editing today (not the one I sent you), and realized that, at a certain point, I had totally lost control of the characters - that they had just begun to do what they wanted - and I thought about how you were one of the only people that I know who would understand what I meant when I said that. LOL! I'll tell you about it when you're feeling better, and when I have more time.

Hurray! I'm so pleased to hear that you're feeling better!
Hooray for feeling better. Now I wait for you to finish Prelude! hehehe...*evil grin*
I had no idea you were feeling that horrible -- it really turned into the cold from hell, didn't it?

I was totally floored to find Hodgell had a livejournal -- I haven't had the guts to post any messages to her yet, but probably will eventually.

She and Steven Brust, who are two of my all-time favorite writers, weirdly both come out of Minnesota, though she seems to now be in Wisconsin. What is it about Minnesota?
